50050 From Counter-Culture to Multi-Cultural: A Tour of the Cedar-Riverside Neighborhood of Minneapolis   NEW!

The Cedar Riverside neighborhood is a densely populated, civically active community that is packed with venues offering live theater performance, music and dance and located adjacent to campus. Its history is nearly as old as the city itself. In the late 1890’s the neighborhood was known as “Snoose Boulevard,” a thriving community of Scandinavian immigrants, many of whom worked in the milling and lumber industries. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, the neighborhood became a beehive of hippies, intellectuals, artists and musicians. The towers of Riverside Plaza were the model for high-rise living of the future. Today, the West Bank boasts the largest community of immigrants in the Twin Cities, continuing a long history of ethnic and cultural diversity. We will meet in the Humphrey School Atrium at 10:30am for the tour. The tour will end (but the conversation will continue) at 12:00 at the Campus Café, Riverside Ave. Please wear comfortable shoes. In the case of heavy rain or storms, we will notify you by email of cancellation.
